Five November Blogging Resolutions

BlogThis month, I’m going to Blog Like Crazy through Birmingham’s See Jane Write blogging group. Our fearless leader Javacia has once again challenged us to blog daily for the entire month of November. Last year, after reading ten or eleven days’ worth of amazing posts, I was itching to write my own, and this blog was born. In honor of the month’s beginning, here are my five blogging resolutions:

  1. Hustle. This month, I will actively work to grow my freelance writing clientele base. I will target new clients more intelligently and efficiently, even after a few rounds of unanswered queries. I will pitch more and write more as I prepare for the future.
  2. Use my time wiselyI’m a master of lists, but I’m also easily distracted. Scheduling my writing, running and reading will create accountability and explicitly lay out my work time and free time.
  3. Take time for self-careIt may not be a session with a professional masseuse or personal trainer, but exercising and being still now receive designated spots in my calendar. With bartending, tutoring and writing stretching me thin, it’s absolutely imperative that I make time to unplug.
  4. Loosen up. Last week, it was brought to my attention that I’m pretty serious which can translate into people thinking I’m unapproachable. As a bartender, that’s not acceptable. I’m hoping to loosen up by lessening my stress levels through items 3 and 4. If not, I’ll find another way.
  5. Show more love. I have the most amazing support system — to whom I rarely reach out. This month, I’m going to contact some of those people to let them know how much they mean to me. I’ve already tried to start doing so with Adam, and want to actively continue that trend through this month.

    Great list! I am working on item 3, and am thinking that unplugging (e.g. less FB, less instagram, etc., might be the way! Good luck!

  2. Great resolutions! I could stand to work on all of those myself!

  3. These are wonderful and I may have to copy them down and tape them to my computer and try them myself! I look forward to reading more from you.

    I may have to write these down for myself and tape them to my monitor. Good luck on #bloglikecrazy and I look forward to reading more from you.

  5. Great goals for November! Almost all of these are things I need to work on too. Thanks for the encouragement and thanks for joining us for #bloglikecrazy.
